The popular McDonald’s Monopoly promotion has been postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The news comes as the firm close their restaurants’ seating areas, moving to takeaway and drive-thru only following advice from the government on social distancing.
“As we review the broader implications of the pandemic, we have taken the decision to delay this year’s Monopoly promotion until we can be confident that customers can win, claim and redeem the prizes available”, Paul Pomroy, CEO announced.
Adding: “This year’s prizes include a number of luxury holidays, European city breaks and cruises which will have all been impacted by current and ongoing restrictions on international travel. Following conversations with our suppliers and prize partners, we feel it is appropriate to delay the promotion until later this year.
“I apologise for any disappointment caused by this update and I look forward to Monopoly returning to our restaurants as soon as possible.”
